Sheila Lowe, MS, is approved by the California Board of Behavioral sciences to provide continuing education to marriage and family therapists (PCE3603). For a minimal fee, LCSW, MFT, and MFCC licensees read the print lectures Sheila posts on her dedicated website, then take a exam. Those who pass the exam are supplied with a certificate for the requisite number of hours. The lectures are comprised of information about topics of concern to therapists in psychology and how they may be applied to handwriting analysis. It is unnecessary for the reader to have any background in handwriting analysis, as each lecture provides plenty of pertinent information and many illustrations so that even a novice can understand how handwriting analysis can be applied to psychology.
The Forensic Handwriting Mystery series features fictional handwriting expert Claudia Rose, whose career mirrors author, Sheila Lowe. Claudia Rose testifies in court in cases of forgery, as well as in cases where personality assessment is required. Her wacky friend Kelly Brennan, a family law attorney, and semi-retired psychologist Zebediah Gold are always there to help when she’s feeling out of her depth. Readers often comment about how much they enjoy the relationship between the “GraphoLady” and L.A.P.D. Detective Joel Jovanic, whom Claudia calls “Columbo.” She is not a detective and she doesn’t solve cases. What she does do is use handwriting analysis to understand the characters who populate the books, the good, the bad, and the truly pathological.
